I love a good ear warmer pattern. And this free crochet ear warmer pattern is simply beautiful but with a bit of a twist…literally. The twisted shells ear warmer has a slight twist in it that when worn, looks like it is kind of crossed or wrapped on your head. This type of ear warmer looks great on everyone and can be worn a few different ways. I like to wear mine with the point created by the twist pointing up since it makes my round face appear a little less round (BONUS!).
Here I’ve used Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice yarn but you can substitute any other comparable worsted weight yarn that fits your fancy. Just make sure that you match gauge so you don’t end up with a ear warmer that doesn’t fit.
